Thanks anon, I was wondering if I was mixing up something truly originally sexist with something thats been appropriated by white people and used for a completely different intent and i think thats basically what white girl jokes are now.
To be honest I didn’t check what race OP was, I didn’t think to do that, but the person I reblogged it from is definitely not black so still i dont know how to feel about the post in general!!
I guess either way it doesn’t affect what I will do much because I am not black and don’t plan on making any of those jokes anyway. Thanks for your input!!!
white girls are having a crisis, y’all.
The basic bitches need some support and reassurance I guess.
right cuz making fun of “basic white girls” is totally not a form of disguised misogyny…
i thought tumblr was over this….teen girls get enough shit already
1) none of these people are teenagers
2) the “basic bitches” thing was started by black girls and has largely been used by black girls and women
3) stay in your lane
sorry, i’m definitely not trying to talk over WOC here.
I know the people in the pictures aren’t teenagers, but lets be realistic here this is pretty much always used to make fun of young women for liking stereotypically feminine things like starbucks, romantic movies/books, stuff like that. not sure how someone can say that isnt misogynistic ?
Maybe it’s different when white girls (and men) make these jokes vs when black girls make these jokes though? because “basic white girl” jokes have definitely been taken over by white people. idk thats not really something i can comment on though i would like to hear more opinions
